Starz has placed their order! The premium cable network has just renewed their latest original series Sweetbitter for a second season consisting of ten episodes. The series just wrapped its quick yet charming first six-episode season in June.
Based on Stephanie Danler’s novel, Sweetbitter follows a young woman named Tess who moves to New York City and finds herself wrapped up in the crazy and thrilling waitressing world of one of New York’s best restaurants. It stars Ella Purnell, Tom Sturridge, Evan Jonigkeit, Paul Sparks and Caitlin FitzGerald.
Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said in a statement:
There’s currently no premiere date set for season 2, but author and series executive producer Stephanie Danler is looking forward to the 10-episode season that will grant them the ability to dive in the meat of Tess’ story saying that the abbreviated first season was treated as somewhat of a “prologue” to them.
Season 1 of Sweetbitter is currently streaming on Starz. You can watch the season 1 trailer below!
